I’m thrilled to be participating in a five day ‘LOL-a-thon organised by ‘The Momsteins’. Join us to read some wonderful letters written by 26 cool bloggers. Stay around to read some amazing letters coming up.
Today’s prompt is ‘Letter to Beloved ’

Oh god! This is the most difficult #Letter Of Love I am going to have to write. I have never ever spoken about how I feel about you in public. In an instance or two, I have only told my closest of friends about how I feel about you. Though in some lighter moments with family or friends, I have talked about your shortcomings, I have never really deemed it essential or appropriate to speak my heart out where you were concerned. And today I am going make an attempt to do the same. And I can already feel the jitters at the possibility of failing to express myself miserably.

As a young adult, I was always at loggerheads with my parents, whenever the topic of marriage was broached up. For one, I was shit scared of getting married to a stranger. Secondly, I believed that no man could tackle my moodiness.

You came as an acquiantence who was thrust on me by play of circumstances. Slowly your friendship, support and companionship became a convenience and then a habit. I deem myself to be lucky that I found an anchor in you. One who put up with my tantrums, my temper and occasional childishness. You showed me the bright side of life and instilled that very important self-confidence whenever I seemed to be losing it. And one fine day I realised, I had fallen for you so bad.

I admire you for continuing to be the understanding friend who listens to my continuous ranting about my dreams and worries without thrusting his opinion on me, until I ask for one. I know you are a busy man with your work taking a major chunk of your mental and clock space. Yet, you are all ears to my pillow talk on toppics that are of little interest to you, at night while you yawn and yearn for nothing but sleep.

But you know what? More than love, I respect you for the gentleman you are. As a friend I always admired you for the helpful person you were. You were always on top while handling a crisis and had your friends back covered. Everyone who knew you, knew who they had to turn to incase they needed help. After our marriage, my parents have found a son in you. My sister regards you an elder brother and prefers to confide in you rather me. This makes me jealous yet extremely proud of you. As a father, you make up efficiently for whatever misgivings I have as an impatient mother.

Beyond, everything, you make life fun. You make me see fun in usual things and in everyday life. You are the balance that keeps me from gliding into any kind of emotional extreme by pulling me towards balance by your words, acts or just your loving eyes.

And I can’t go on any further, because I am getting tempted to talk about things, which are too close to my heart and this is a public platform. No I am not going to give in to this temptation. I would be too embarrassed.

I only want you to know, that at times, I might act a little unreasonable or even bother you too much with my antics. But in the core of my heart I know that I could not have found a life partner, who would have complemented me any better. And that I am indebted to the almighty for bringing you into my life and making me a part of yours.

I would like to thank Alpana Deo for introducing me. You can read her post here.

I feel that we take our spouses for granted the most. This Lol-a-thon was a good opportunity to take some time out from our busy schedules and express our gratitude to our loved ones

hahah i loved the letter, looks like your husband is a protective figure while you enjoy the protection and leave the ‘being-oh-so-matured-and-grown-up” part for him! Though im still keen to know about things you did not continue to write 😉

Not exactly, We have our own ideas about being matured. I am the more sensitive one when it comes to dealing with the non-larger issues, while he is the one to take on the beastic ones. It is a very complementary kind of thing. But then here in this post I had to focus on how he completes me 😉
